Edward C. Taylor arrived at Hamilton in 1942 intending to become a writer. To fulfill a science requirement, he flipped a coin and opted for chemistry over biology. That serendipitous decision led to a lifelong passion and a life-saving discovery.
Taylor’s discovery in 1987 of a compound that he and Lilly developed into Alimta, the first effective treatment for malignant pleural mesothelioma and later approved to combat non-small-cell lung cancer. After five years on the market, Alimta became the most successful new cancer drug, in terms of sales, in the history of the pharmaceutical industry.
